and wisconsin later today. meanwhile, president obama is in a holding pattern, kangs ling events in ohio and florida to return to washington and monitor the storm. the white house canceled the president's trip to wisconsin scheduled for tomorrow. but while voters won't see him on the trail they will see him in the role of commander in chief including later this hour when he delivers a statement on the hurricane from the white house. and perhaps voters will be wondering how a president romney might handle the very same situation. one indication comes from a primary debate in june of last year, when governor romney made the case for shutting down fema and passing the responsibility on to the states. >> fema is about to run out of money and some people say do it on a case-by-case basis and some who say maybe we're learning a lesson here the states should take on more of this role. >> absolutely. every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go even further and send it back to the priva

about 90 mosts. both the obama campaign and the romney campaign hope the numbers will boost those economic arguments they've been making through this campaign and right into the final days of the race. we have complete coverage of what to expect this morning. let's begin with christine. she's got a look at what we could see. >> could see an unemployment rate that kicks up to about 7.9%. that's the forecast of economists surveyed by cnn money, soledad. 125,000 jobs added overall. for net new job creation. the important thing here is the trend. and it is the trend that has been so important to american families. american workers. and the two political campaigns, quite frankly. the president took office with unemployment rate at 7.8%, soledad. and then embarked on a massive stimulus plan and unemployment rate kept rising to 10%. but then started to come down. started to come down and is now back at 7.8%. and we got that number, of course, last month. and that was a big surprise overall. you look at the job creation. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. t
before the election what are people talking about? not barack obama or mitt romney but hurricane sandy. it is probably the biggest storm to hit this country, but still 12 to 24 hours away did authorities act too soon in shutting down schools, businesses, and transit systems? a case of overkill or just being smart? that's our big debate this morning here on the "full court press." we'll get back into that after we check in with lisa ferguson with current tv update. hi, lisa good morning. >> hey, bill good morning, everybody. mitt romney is moving his campaign innland. he canceled an event scheduled in virginia yesterday, and today he campaigns in iowa and wisconsin. if romney did become president we could see a very different type of hurricane response. earlier this season he said he would rather get rid of fema. he would rather second disaster relief back to the states and to privatize it. in reality taking services out of the public sector can actually second the government deeper in to debt. we have sene a little bit of that with the military contracting with the
romney. vote for romney, you don't get obama. all the rest, all of the distractions and mickey mousing comes down to this. will you, you, the person you are in your soul be counted. if not, i just don't know a good thing to say to you. this one counts for history. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, it looks like obama/christie 2012. president obama in new jersey, governor chris christie today toured hard hit areas of hurricane sandy. their survey of the devastation reminded americans of how many people are suffering from the storm and how essential it is for government to help them. and then governor christie, the man mitt romney handpicked to give the keynote address at his convention began to praise president obama. >> obviously i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together and we saw an opportunity to discuss it at lengt
including some along the garden state parkway. yesterday president obama joined governor chris christie on the ground in atlantic city for an up-close look at the destruction where the storm came ashore. they also saw the damage by air. boarding the president's marine one helicopter for aerial views of the hardest-ity communities. the governor thanked the president for pledging quick federal relief to the region. it's something president obama insists will not be delayed. >> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. we are not going to tolerate red tape. we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. and i've instituted a 15-minute rule essentially on my team, you return everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes. whether it's the mayors, the governors, county officials. if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> and the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and inte
close presidential race. take a look at the latest national polls of the president obama has just a one-point lead among likely voters. three new swing state polls show the president still in the lead, although with a margin that is shrinking in florida, virginia and ohio. and instead of campaigning, the president went to the red cross in washington, d.c., yesterday. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. millions of folks all across the eastern seaboard. but america is tougher. and we're tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an american is in need, all of us stand together to make sure that we're providing the help that's necessary. >> mitt romney will resume a full campaign schedule today, stumping in florida. he held a disaster relief event yesterday in ohio. >> we've got people right now that are having some hard times because of this terrible hurricane and the storm that followed it, and your generosity will make a difference. so i want to thank you. >> i want to bring in usa today
of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> we have our dynamic jobs report duo, bernstein and mauri maurice. that's a good number. how is it? >> it's a good number when you consider the past couple of months moved up on the payrolls 84,000. one of the things i always like to do when we talk about this is smooth out the monthly noise in the data by taking ang average. if you look at the average over the past four months and the employment growth has picked up, it's 170,000 per month. if you look at the second quarter when we were in a definite slower job growth regime, we added 70,000 per month. what you hear the president reflecting on there and it's worn out in the numbers is acceleration. a faster pace of job growth that's a good thing. you mentioned the tick up in the unemployment rate. that increase is insignificant, but more importantly this time it's a function of more people coming into the labor market. a bunch of them got jobs, but more people came in than were employed. if that persists, it's actually a good sign suggesting that
. the immediate aftermath of the storm, president obama declared a large swath of the east coast as a major disaster area. neighborhoods brought to their knees by what we think of as mother nature's dispassion nat, impersonal force. they blow back the covers on the structural inequities and reveal the life and death consequences of the inequalities, slamming directly into the heart of one of the biggest metropolises. sandy racked the focus in a way that let's us see the differences. 21% of this city lives in poverty. on the island of manhattan, the wealthiest fifth make 40 times of the poorest fifth. a gap only surpassed by a few developing nations. this is a disaster we live with each and every day, the gulf between the rich and poor in this city was only exacerbated by the great reception. all of us are still living through a disaster brought on by the immediate devastation from the financial crash and housing crises. we have been living in a state of disaster since the financial storm racked our nation to its structural core. a housing cyclone that hollowed out more homes that hurricane

, then candidate barack obama, spoke about big things. but now he is reduced to talking about small things. he is shrinking from the magnitude of the times. and so he is speaking about characters on sesame street, and silly word games, and attacks on me. look, attacking me is not an agenda for the future and that's why we're replacing him. [cheering] >> you know, his presidency also shrunk from the promises he made as a candidate. he promised his would be a post-partisan presidency but he been divisive and demon niced almost any group that opposed him. he promised he would cut the deficit in half. instead he doubled it. i know he says he wants to do something to help the budget. but i learned in order to balance a budget, it starts -- it helps to have actually had a budget. to start with a budget. and -- [cheering] >> you can't balance a budget unless you start with one, and he actually put out a proposal this last year for the house and the senate to look at. there are 535 members of the house and senate combined. do you know how many people voted for his budget? zero. no one voted for his bu
